LRZ selects debugging solution

Share this on social media:

Germany's Leibniz Supercomputing Centre has chosen Allinea Software to support debugging for the targeted large-scale parallel applications on the IBM SuperMUC system.

LRZ, which is the computer centre for Munich's universities and for the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, provides high-end computing facilities for the scientific community in Germany and beyond.

The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) announced the implementation of the IBM system, which will comprise of more than a hundred thousand cores capable of delivering an impressive three peak petaflops/s of processing power. When SuperMUC is installed at LRZ in the middle of 2012, it will most likely be a top 10 system. SuperMUC will follow the 1.0 petaflop Jugene (Jülich Blue Gene Blue Gene/P supercomputer), already in service at Forschungszentrum Juelich (FZJ), and the 1.25 petaflop Bull-built Curie system at the Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique (CEA) in France.

These machines currently occupy 9th and 6th position respectively on the Top500 list. It will be one of the Tier-0 systems available in the PRACE infrastructure, which provides large-scale computational resources and infrastructure for scientific applications throughout Europe.
